Lydia is now available for adoption! She has recovered from her bladder stone surgery. Lydia would like a home that is willing to gently work with her shyness and allow her to become the Scottie we all know is hiding beneath those big brown eyes.
Lydia is 5-7 years of age and is rather petite. She is such a sweetheart!
Lydia was surrendered to Scottie Kingdom Rescue from a commercial breeding facility. Within 24 hours, it was clear she did not feel well, and was immediately taken to our vet. Testing determined that Lydia's bladder is packed with bladder stones, which have also led to a severe urinary tract infection. She is now being given high doses of antibiotics and pain medication, in anticipation of urgently needed surgery on Monday. She will also require a dental cleaning and possibly some extractions, but this will have to be done at a later date, as her Cystotomy (bladder surgery) is urgently needed. It is unknown if she will tolerate being spayed at the same time of her Cystotomy, so this too may have to be delayed. Lydia is approximately 6yo.
Once all of her medical needs are met, she will more than likely require a special diet, so there isn't a recurrence of the bladder stones.
Lydia's surgery was estimated to cost $1,000.00, and while it was more costly than planned, we have now received donations covering these costs. Lydia thanks each and every person that donated to her fund. You all are special angels!
Thank you for your help. Thank you for caring.
All dogs adopted by Scottie Kingdom Rescue, Inc. have had a full medical exam by one of our licensed Veterinarians, which includes testing (and treatment, if necessary) for Heartworm disease, Lyme disease, Ehrlichia and Anaplasmosis, all necessary vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, dental cleaning as necessary, microchipping, registration of the microchip, and any other medical needs each particular dog may need. Copies of all available medical records are transferred to you when the adoption is finalized.
We prefer to adopt to families with past Scottie, Westie, Terrier (or similar) experience, but realize this isn’t always possible. We do NOT ship our pets. If you have that special place in your heart, and in your home, for a Scottie (or any of our other available rescue dogs), please visit us in Dallas for an in person meet & greet session with our available dogs. If you have existing dogs, they must travel to Dallas with you, so we can be assured that they will be compatible with the new addition to your family.
Please contact us at Rescue@scottiekingdom.com to receive an Adoption Application or for more information on our Adoption process. Also, please take the time to visit our website www.scottiekingdom.com for additional information.
We sometimes receive several applications on the same dog. Our goal is to place the dog in the best home possible, based on his/her needs, personality and past history. Please note: Adoptions are not done on a first come, first served basis. Submitting an application does not guarantee the adoption of any dog. We are looking for the best available home for each of our rescue dogs.
Thank you for your understanding, and for considering adoption!
